[Spring 2021 harvest]
This tea is quite a bit more savoury and less fruity than other MLX I’ve had. I like it, but at the same time there isn’t too much there that would keep me coming back to it.
The dry leaf aroma is sweet, nutty, and perfumy. Wet leaves then smell of sage and peach ice cream.
The liquor has a medium to light body and mineral, watery texture. First infusion is cooling, spicy and herbaceous with notes of rose and yeast, the latter of which persist into the nutty aftertaste. Second steep is smooth and bitter with mild stonefruit sweetness and citrus zest flavour. Later ones bring out the more mineral, savoury aspects and notes of butter, sunflower seeds, and gin.
